By day, Sebastien Roux is a programmer at the IRCAM lab in Paris. In his spare time, he puts together beautiful, low-key pieces on laptop and hand-built electronics.

|Adam Butler, live at slow sound system, 9.5.04 - Adam Butler|
Adam Butler is better known as Mouse On Mars collaborator Vert, and has released albums on their Sonig label. He also records a kind of laptop piano jazz under his own name. His reworking of Keith Jarrett's 'Koln Konzert' was one of The Wire's Records of the Year in 2000, and his followup, 'Schmoozing With The Apres-Garde' on Ekkehard Ehlers' superb Whatness label, follows in the same vein - music at the intersection of cocktail bar jazz, Satie and digital collage...

One of the UK's premier noise artists. Cheapmachines has been in existence since 1997, acting at the interface between noise electronics, generative software, field recordings, tape music and drones. On this Sunday afternon, we were shaken up by stark, stunning soundscaping and musique concrete. Be warned - this is a challenging sonic journey, but well worth it.

|Motion / Recon live at slow sound system, 22.2.04 - Motion / Recon|
As Motion, Chris Coode records compelling minimalist sound constructions. Recent releases on 12k, L-ne and Fat Cat place him at the forefront of the microsound scene. As Recon, he departs from the Motion template to pursue a stripped-down, dubbed-out techno reminiscent of the Basic Channel and Chain Reaction canon. This set for slow sound system, recorded on a cold February afternoon in London, seamlessly combines both styles...

|Crucial Felix, live at slow sound system, 18.7.03 - Crucial Felix|
Crucial Felix is Chris Sattinger, better known as Tigerbeat6/Shockout/Orthlong artist Timeblind. Chris has released a slew of bass-heavy rhythm experiments on these labels, rewiring hiphop, ragga and dub through filthy noise and dsp. When he visited slow sound system, however, he came up with something completely different - a sublime set of free jazz sax and SuperCollider patches, building jagged riffs over vast clouds of static and low-end rumble...

|Duff Parka, live at slow sound system, 22.2.04 - Duff Parka|
Duff Parka - the enigmatic Scottish laptop wizard - is rumoured to be connected to the seminal 8bitrecs netlabel and various other London-based projects. Nobody really knows. Whatever, he emerged from his bedroom earlier this year to give slow sound system a taste of his new sound. It's a relaxed soundscape, with drones, guitar figures and heavy beats the major landmarks. Think Morr Music, City Centre Offices or Aesthetics, but probably better...
